Heirs holds script rehearsal, begins production

I’m pretty sure we’ve exhausted our stores of what there is to say about Heirs, the much-buzzed-about new high school trendy drama featuring a cast of uber-rich characters. And the show has only just started production. We’ve certainly been hearing about it for months, though, and every time I’ve thought they were done casting, they went and added even more young hot things. As though Lee Min-ho, Park Shin-hye, Kim Woo-bin, and Choi Jin-hyuk weren’t reasons enough to tune in.

But as you can see in the script reading photos above/below, there are many more in the mix, including but probably not limited to: Kang Haneul (Monstar), Park Hyung-shik (Nine), Kang Min-hyuk (CN Blue and You’ve Fallen For Me), Im Joo-eun (Wild Romance), and Krystal (of f(x) and High Kick 3). One wonders: At what point are there TOO many young stars in a cast—is there such a thing?—dividing our attentions and not giving anybody quite enough screen time?

In fact, I’m pretty sure this show has been hyped enough that it’s time we deflate the balloon of expectations a bit, lest it pop in our faces. At least there’s only one more month left till Heirs premieres, on October 9. One full, long, whooooole month.

Seriously. No matter what, it can't be badly ACTED, over all. So even if it's too ridiculous for words, there's gonna be some good stuff...and it's got to hold the Guinness record for most eye candy, at the VERY least.

But it can be badly written, such as with Gentleman's Dignity, which Woobie and Lee JongHyuk couldn't save in a million years.

So, fingers crossed, this will be Korean-Gossip-Girl-Awesome.

I WAS looking forward to it until I learned Kim Woo-bin is a second lead (and probably the third leg of a love triangle which is usually the case with second leads), which means he probably won't get the girl (because second leads never do). I want Woo-bin to get the girl! I may still watch just to see Kim Woo-bin and Choi Jin-hyuk since I absolutely LUV them!

Ashely,

That was my very first thought! He can certainly do girly-man, but when LMH does the full on testosterone version (casual, not fussy, athletic), that is the best.

I wish he would take on a role that has him as an athlete doing athletic things. A gal can dream, no?

Looking forward to October and the hottest mess/crack on screen!

awww...does this mean a definite no extension for Master's Sun?

I like the cast. (Okay, maybe not the idols as much). I haven't seen much of the PD's and the writer's works, but I have heard good things about them.

But I am NOT looking forward to the plot, or at least the bit of the plot we have right now. Drama about high school? Eh, could swing either way (of being a good plot) for me. But add the fact the students are rich, and there's a poorer GIRL (when would these high school dramas have a poorer BOY?) and the component of the rich kids "fighting"/ "competing" among themselves for a bit more pieces of the pie (although they have so much already) turns me off totally.

I really hope I am pleasantly surprised of the plot when I tune in the couple first episodes. Until then, I'm going to watch SJS take a page out from Bi/Rain's book in "How to avoid the Sun" :]

I think we are going to end up agreeing that it is a huge mega-hit, total crack, and yet a bit disappointing to anyone who wanted a bit more substance. The preponderance of idols and the high school setting leads me to believe it is going to be light, uncomplicated fluff (roles the idols can handle easily, because they will be playing themselves). LMH and PSH will not have any complicated relationship issues to act their way through.
I'll watch it, because it will be slick, well-produced fluff with a few actors I like, but I'll probably have to do something else at the same time to keep my brain occupied.

On a totally frivolous note, I hate Kim Woo-bin's hair. I hope this is a momentary aberration.

I think you sum up it quiet well: "a huge mega-hit, total crack, and yet a bit disappointing to anyone who wanted a bit more substance." I can't help to thinkit would be another BOF.

The (probable) lack of substance makes me sad, because it seems such a waste of the talents of the (some of ) the actors-I actually like the PSH & LMH pairing- and the talents of the staff.

I shouldn't be so judgmental of a drama before it airs. But maybe it is because I am truly enjoying "Master's Sun" and a bit miffed that it will end with out a extension (although I do not want the staff and actors to work more) and high probability that it would be "swallowed" by Heirs in recognition, praise and hype that would probably translate to more end-of-the year awards.

oh but yes, i should hold my fire until the drama airs...

Having LMH as the poor student/PSH as the snobby rich girl would make things a bit more interesting actually! Since I seriously can't find how this is any dfferent than BOF except for my hubby KWB gracing this drama with his presence.

i think they extended master's sun by 2 episodes. It was originally intended for 16 episodes, but if The Heirs airs on 9oct, there is still 8 more episodes for master's sun.

but I am not sure whether to anticipate for premiere of The Heirs or to frown. Certainly enjoying Master's Sun but can't wait for The Heirs.

ahhhh the frustration......... I hope The Heirs don't let me down, else it will be super anti-climax after the excitement from Master's Sun....

This show really scares me cause I want it to do well and be as amazing as we all hope it to be but the basic premise of it is just so boring and the amount of hype pre-filming hasn't helped either.
I'm just going to keep my expectations extremely low and see where it goes from there.

The plot has been used and re-used to death. I hope there's something more to it than what we're told. I'm certainly not expecting too much, that way I won't be too disapointed, or I'll be pleasantly surprised (I hope!)

It's just hard to develop characters with as big of an ensemble cast like Heirs.. Then again it is Kim Eun Sook and she has very colorful(unforgettable) characters.

Getting to this topic, I want to lower my expectations for Heirs but I can't help it. Even though I know this could go the way of Lie To Me, I'm still prepared to love it like I did Lie To Me inspite of all its major craziness. Is it october 9 yet.

i think it can be done. even with that many cast a drama can make every characters show/feel. one good example is Answer me 1997, the first 1-4 episode was like 30, but they captured all of the characters from the 6 friends, the parents and YJ's older brother. everything and everyone was heartfelt and fleshed out.

So it can be done, the only question is, will that be done be HEIRs...

All the eye candy kinda makes me scared. Like what if they waste all that pretty in a crappy unwatchable show. Just that Master's sun is doing a good job of making me think. I'm afraid that Heirs would just be all looks.

Don't expect great things in the romance department:

1. This is a high school drama. Korean TV doesn't believe high school kids kiss with their mouths open.
2. The lead is PSH. With one exception (and that was all due to the amazing efforts of her co-star) her kiss scenes have been horrible, stiff and awkward. She does cute really well, but I don't think I have ever seen one iota of sexual realization, much less desire, from her in anything she has done.

Required fields are marked *

Two exceptions, if you count CFs. I really do believe onscreen kissing is more in the hands of the PD than the leads, and given how conservative Korean society seems to be about women actually acting on any form of desire, it's perhaps not fair to pin it all on her. Though I am not optimistic about any kissing in Heirs, it's a high school show on network tv after all.

I agree with skelly on the point that this is a high school drama and it we will not see anything particularly exciting regarding romantic heat. Also agree with the PSH factor, the projects she participates in are usually tepid at best regarding kisses/romance---BUT I agree with Pogo, can we really blame the 'style' of drama kisses on the actor or actress? They, or their agency, may choose projects based on what is required of them, that is true, so in that way they may determine what what is required of them onscreen. But they do what they are told to do onscreen. I imagine the actors/actresses are the last people to have any input on what gets on screen. The producers and directors and to some extent the writers, along with the airing station and the government, determine what sexual content is executed, filmed, and aired.

I would love for the drama gods to prove us wrong. ;) It's a crying all night shame, with all that hotness involved.

On a lesser note, the premise sounds like a bore to me. Ah, have to wait and see how this all pans out.

Wow. There really is a lot of cast members. A lot of them are young and hot up-and-comers, and some are just hot. I know that many of them can act, but there are a few that I'm worried about being overshadowed. Namely Krystal. She's not without talent, but there is no way she's as talented as Park Shin-hye or Lee Min-ho or Choi Jin-hyuk. There's just no way. I really hope she does well because I like her a lot and I'm a fan of f(X). So, I'm a little nervous about how she'll measure up to the rest of the cast.

That being said, I'm so looking forward to this! It's got many of my favorite actors in it. Lee Min-ho is one of my favorite Korean actors ever. He was the lead in Boys Over Flowers, my first ever Korean drama, so he has a special place in my heart, kind of like Super Junior does. They were the group that introduced me to K-pop. So I'm looking forward to this as a fan of Lee Min-ho.

Also, Park Shin-hye, Kim Woo-bin, and Choi Jin-hyuk. Three very talented young actors who I'm looking forward to seeing more of.

I cannot wait until October 9! It seems like such a long time, but it really isn't. I hope this drama does not disappoint!
